The Red Letter Plays: F*cking A

Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre

Until October 1, 2017

First premiering in 2000 in Houston, Susan Lori Parks' eye-opening interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letters is split into two works, with In The Blood preceding this by one year. The reviled and controversial character of Hester forms the focal points of these two plays; In "F*cking A", this version of Hester is a local abortionist, who women both turn to in need, whilst at the same time, condemning her as a criminal for her work. Branded with the letter A, Hester is forced to navigate a legal system that stacks the odds against her.

Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre

Until October 8, 2017

Playing in rep with her play "F*cking A" for the very first time, Susan Lori Parks' "In The Blood" again explores the themes of sex, vegeance and society, in her interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's explosive The Scarlet Letter. In The Blood takes a different view of the anti-heroine known as Hester; instead of condemned abortionist, this version of Hester is a single mother of five children, all with different fathers. She is also branded with the letter A - this time for adultress.

Irene Diamond Stage at Signature Theatre

October 3 - November 12, 2017

Can murderers ever truly find redemption? This is the question asked in this new revival of Stephen Adly Guirgis' 2000 acclaimed drama. Praised by both Ben Brantley (The New York Times and The Village Voice's Michael Feingold, it was also notable for its directing talent; the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The story focuses on a 30-year-old bicycle messenger who is languishing until trial for murder on Rikers Island, and his friendship with a seemingly innocent man, who claims to have found Jesus, whilst awaiting his own trial.

Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre

November 1, 2017 - January 1, 2018

Set against real events which took place in Greenwich Village in 1976, Downtown Race Riot is a portrait of a single mother (played by Chloe Sevigny) and her son coming to terms with the racial tension of the 1970s, as a fatal riot rages outside their apartment. Written by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld​ (The Get Down, Handball) and directed by Scott Elliot (The Whirligig), it's a look back at an atmosphere of intolerance which is sadly not confined to an America of the past.

Edward Albee's At Home at the Zoo

Irene Diamond Stage at Signature Theatre

January 30 - March 11, 2018

Honoring the work of the late thrice- Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning Edward Albee, this new revival of his 2004 play is directed by the in-demand Lila Neugebauer, a year after this death. A work that was in fact an extension of his 1959 one-act drama The Zoo Story, this play explores the life of one man, Peter as he and his wife discuss the ennui in their marriage. We then follow Peter him to the zoo for some quiet contemplation, only to have his life shattered completely.
